Eltex Yarn Expert -Tufting

Yarn fault detection for tufting machines.

The Eltex EYE is a flexible system designed for yarn fault detection on tufting machines. It is designed to improve quality and efficiency by reducing mending and down time.

  • EYE for tufting uses the Compact yarn sensors.
  • The sensors are normally fitted between the feed rollers and the needles.
  • 100% of Tufting Yarn Breaks / End Outs detected.
  • The sensors use the well proven piezoelectric principle.
  • The special compact design enables the sensors to be fitted on machines with a gauge as dense as 1/10th of an inch.
